LOS ANGELES - NEW YORK – Four all-new stand-up specials, four consecutive weekends: Comedy Central becomes “Stand-Up Central” (#StandUpCentral) this April with a slew of one-hour world premieres from comedic heavyweights Nikki Glaser (“Not Safe with Nikki Glaser”), Daniel Tosh (“Tosh.0”), Rachel Feinstein (“The Half Hour”) and Chris Hardwick (“@midnight with Chris Hardwick”).
